Durham District School Board looking for City approval of new classroom construction at downtown Oshawa school

The Durham District School Board wants to build a new classroom wing for the downtown Mary Street School, so long as their landlord – the City of Oshawa – gives them the go ahead.

The board plans on constructing a new classroom wing addition and demolishing a portion of the existing school building, relocating the school parking lot and constructing new children’s outdoor area at the school, located at 10 Mary St. N.

The project requires the City signing off on a Site Plan Approval application form, Site Alteration Permit form and building permit application. Staff has recommended to the Development Services Committee that the request be approved.

Council was informed by the Board last year about the project, which resulted in a new lease between the two sides that runs until September 1, 2083.
